Without warning, Lecrae is surprising fans with new music.

It may not be the new album people have been waiting for, but the 36-year-old rapper is releasing new material for the first time since the 2014 release of his critically acclaimed studio album “Anomaly.” The Grammy Award winning Christian rapper took to social media to announce that he would release the third and last installment of his Church Clothes mixtape series that previously garnered millions of downloads on streaming websites and iTunes

“I heard some requests for ‪#‎CC3‬. Now on Apple Music,” Lecrae wrote on Facebook. “Mixtape Madness. ‪#‎CC3‬ should hold you over til ‘______’ drops.”

The rapper’s new project, “Church Clothes 3,” features fellow artists E-40, N’Dambi, Propaganda, John Givez, JGivens, Jackie Hill Perry and his fellow Reach Records rapper KB. In conjunction with the “Church Clothes 3” EP produced by S1 (Kanye West, Jay Z), the rapper has introduced a short film with the same name that features four songs from the new mixtape, “It Is What It Is,” “Gangland,” “Déjà Vu” and “Misconceptions 3.”
